This is the shocking moment when a violent man breaks into a neighbouring apartment and violently beats up the young woman inside because they were being too noisy while celebrating the engagement of one of them.
The video then went viral, and instead of sympathy, they were bombarded with hate messages from people who criticised their party and praised the man for his actions.
Several women, including the 2018 Vice-Miss Tyumen, Alexandra Pershina, 22, had gathered together for the small celebration in an apartment in the city of Tyumen in the Russian federal subject of the same name on 23rd July.
According to the news website Komsomolskaya Pravda’s report, on that evening, nothing indicated the trouble that was to follow as the women insist they were being respectful of their neighbours.
They said that the music was being played quietly, the girls did sing some songs, but were basically just having fun and relaxing.
They noted that some of them had been on the balcony as well, but not a single person had complained about the noise and on the contrary, some of the neighbours heard shouting over to congratulate them on the engagement news.
Later, the ladies moved back into the apartment, when suddenly a man they did not know came in through the balcony of the apartment and began attacking them, including an unidentified pregnant woman. The man then left the way he had come in through the balcony.
According to the news website Life’s report, the women who were subjected to the violence of the man called the police, and even went to the police office to give a statement; however, the officers reportedly did not take any action regarding the incident.
What is more, the women themselves were subject to abuse online with many people praising the man for taking the law into his own hands and silencing the partygoers.
The footage of those moments that Alexandra shared on her Instagram account shows the moment when the violent man hit and cursed them and then left the apartment from the balcony again.
According to Alexandra, by posting a video of the incident, she only wanted the man who broke into someone else’s apartment and beat up the women who were there, to be punished according to the law.
She said she, like the other girls, were then shocked that it turned into the complete opposite.
She has had to close her social media accounts after she began receiving threats on social networks and on the phone.
In a second video, Alexandra says that she was surprised by the negative comments, threats and insults, and that her only aim was not to make this an attempt to put the truth out there, and ensure that the man was accordingly punished and restrained from repeating the incident.
Alexandra addresses the public with the following words, “I’m shaking all over. I have never encountered such a thing in my life. Now they are pouring mud at me in my own account, they write: ‘Die, scum, animal!’ People, are you serious? I am a respectable person, I work a lot. Why are you so angry? What’s wrong with you?”
According to the 5 TV’s report, she was forced to delete the previously published post and close access to her account on the social network.
The prosecutor of the Tyumen region, Vladislav Moskovskikh, reportedly took control of the case and has ordered that the police conduct a procedural check on the incident.
